With the State Breed Exhibition and Obedience Trial being conducted over this week end, all branches of the club will be closed. Any new members wishing to sign up can do so the following Saturday March 16 from 1.00pm. when we will be back in full swing.
The Northern Branch is the only metropolitan venue of the GSDCV to train on Saturday afternoons. This gives members from other Branches the flexibility of an alternative site when the situation demands a different day. We have a group of very experienced instructors who can give guidance in general obedience for nine week old puppies through to older mature dogs, obedience trialing, Rally O, tracking and endurance.
Thinking of giving conformation shows a crack? We can help there too. Also handy for members haling from other Branches….you do not have to miss a class!
Training times are: Obedience classes commence at 2.00pm, Show Classes commence at 3.20pm
We do encourage members to arrive about 30 mins prior to take advantage of the socialisation that occurs before classes.
If you have questions regarding the training of puppies and older dogs, purchasing a puppy or a membership enquiry, please call our Chief Instructor Terry Taukus on 0439 003468 (Please call or e-mail only)
